Explore the green Rabacal Valley in northwest Madeira with an expert guide leading you through its thick laurel forest. Enjoy the rich ecosystem around you. Marvel at the enchanting landscape and wander the levada (aqueduct) network, discovering the waterfalls and fountains en route to Risco.

Access to Madeira's dense laurisilva (laurel forest) is best enjoyed via the network of irrigation channels built to better transport water around the island, known as the levadas. Walking these trails takes you through almost fantastical scenery and past numerous species of mosses, lichens, and ferns.

Your knowledgeable guide expertly navigates you through the valley on a moderately challenging 7.5-mile (12-km) route. Pause at charming ponds, delightful fountains, and flowing waterfalls. This laurel forest floods the senses; the sights, smells, and sounds are sure to live long in your memory. Be sure to snap a few pictures to try and capture the wonderful scenery.

Planned trip in advance because we had a full itinerary, days before we were notified that the walk was moved to a different day. Had lots of delay trying to get ahold of people and at last was offered a different day which did not work. We ended cancelling walk, very disappointed.
